Kickoff for Nordic Testfacility Collaboration: Nordic Proof

Nordic ProofThe Intervention Centre's Test Facility has become a partner in the Nordic Proof consortium. Nordic Proof is a network of professional test facilities at the leading hospitals in the Nordic Region. With Nordic Proof a one point enty for industry collaboration has been established.
The main target of Nordic Proof is to ease the access to users and health professionals and speed up the process for testing and verification of medtech and e-health solutions. On November 8th 2017 leaders from Nordic hospitals and municipal care organizations met at Oslo Science Park to launchthe Nordic Proof test facilities situated in the Nordic capital regions.

E-Health Price to The Intervention Centre

RKResearchers at The Intervention Centre was awarded the E-Health Price at the Health World 2017 Conference in Oslo Norway. The price was given for development of hologram technology for operating theatres. The jury gave the price as the HoloViz project gives Norwegian surgeons the possibility to plan operations better by use of Mixed Reality-technology. This project was funded by the Regional Health Authority Helse sør-øst. Medical images are provided in 3D and represent organs of specific patients before complex procedures. Researchers at The Intervention Centre have been developing the platform together with programmers from Sopra Steria.

New PhD on Myocardial function and 3D motion analysis using a three-axis accelerometer during cardiac surgery

ojgOn September 1st 2017 Ole-Johannes Holm Nielsen Grymyr dended his thesis at Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo. The commission was 1.opponent Michael Broomé, ECMO Centre, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden, 2. opponent Professor Truls Myrmel, Institutt for klinisk medisin, Universitetet i Tromsø - Norges arktiske universitet, Norway and Professor II Theis Tønnessen, Institutt for klinisk medisin, Universitetet i Oslo. Professor II Johan Ræder, Institutt for klinisk medisin, Universitetet i Oslo led the dissertation. Abstract: Complications to heart surgery can be detected instantly with accelerometers placed on the heart wall. Myocardial ischemia and heart failure are the most frequent complications after heart surgery. These complications can be detected in real time with motion sensors such as accelerometers as heart motion is linked to heart function. Instant and distinct changes in myocardial contraction are found if the blood-flow is reduced. Previously work has shown that a 3-axis accelerometer placed on the heart allows earlier detection of this complication than routine measures like invasive blood pressures and electrocardiograms.

Oslo University Hospital and Sopra Steria win the Microsoft 2017 Health Innovation Award

Surgical planningA group of researchers at the Intervention Centre Oslo University Hospital and Sopra Steria win the Microsoft 2017 Health Innovation Award for bringing Microsoft HoloLens technology into the operating theatre. The award was handed out during HIMSS 2017. A Sugical Navigation system developed at the Intervension Centre has been implemented on the HoloLens platform from Microsoft in collaboration with Sopra Steria. The goal is to improve surgery of liver cancer and heart deformities by visualizing the existing 3D model of the actual organ in Microsoft Hololens. The system is also used by cardiologists involved in treatment of congenital heart disease. Read more on our Twitter account @InterventionCen.

Ralf Greisiger new PhD on Objective Measurements and Cochlear Implants Imaging

Orgn 19. des. 2016 Dipl.ing. Ralf Greisiger at the Department of Informatics defended his Thesis in a dissertation for the degree of Ph.D with the title Objective Measurements and Cochlear Implants Imaging. The PhD thesis from Ralf Greisiger investigated objective measurements and imaging of Cochlear Implants (CI). Since 1997 he has been working with CI patients in an effort to improve patient speech perception outcomes. A CI is a device implanted in the head which allows deaf or partly deaf people to hear by stimulating the inner ear electrically. The studies were carried out at Oslo University Hospital – Rikshospitalet, which has the national responsibility for all deaf children in Norway. Each year 20-30 children are born deaf in Norway. Also, some children and adults lose their hearing progressively. Every year, approximately 125 adults and children receive a CI at Rikshospitalet.
